    Episode 1:
    "If Only I Had Thorns Like A Thistle…"

    [​IMG]

    Opening Theme: "Sirius" by Eir Aoi
    Ending Theme: "Gomen ne, Iiko ja Irarenai" by Miku Sawai​
    From the brains that brought us Tenga Toppa Gurren Lagann comes another epic anime series, courtesy of a new studio appropriately named Studio Trigger. If you've never seen the series before (or participated in the Toonzone AotM discussion for this), prepare to be entertained by some serious fighting action combined with battle gear under the guise of school uniforms.

    This time:
    Ryuko Matoi is a vagrant school girl traveling from place to place searching for clues to the truth behind her father's death - the "woman with the scissor blade." The journey had led Ryuko to Honnouji Academy.

    WARNING: Absolutely NO SPOILERS are allowed beyond this point! I repeat. NO SPOILERS, or Ira Gamagoori will discipline you, you pigs in human clothing!

    Enjoy the show, everyone. Remember to use #WatchToonami on social media while watching tonight to show that you still support the block.

    The one anime that might be more over-the-top than Gurren Lagann. This should make for some interesting discussion.

    I've been watching Gurren Lagann on Toonami, and Kill la Kill is WAY more over-the-top.
    My one issue is that the dub VAs aren't the best, but serviceable.

    What was with the servers this time? Anyway, here are some comments I have so far:

    Another anime with Nazi references.

    Viral vs. Franky.

    She goes for a jackpot, but comes up lemons.

    This show really loves text, doesn’t it?

    I wise rarrior knows when to retreat.

    The new Toonami: Less shows, less clothes. Actually, that doesn’t sound all bad.

    Oh, this forum and its unpredictable outages.

    This one better be good. AoA. You're already one out of four.

    Uh oh. Wasn't this how Deadman Wonderland started?

    Well, they say clothes make the man.

    Frickin high school social hierarchy. "At the very bottom are the anime freaks!"

    WAR IS PEACE! FREEDOM IS SLAVERY! IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH!

    "There it is...Honouji academy."
    Looks more like the DWMA.

    I didn't know Konohamaru had a sister.

    "Lemme on lemme on lemme on PEEEEEEASE--oh, I got on. Yay."

    It's Hiroyuki Imaishi. What did you expect?

    She's already made a friend.

    The star-bellied students have uniforms with stars. The plain-bellied students have none upon thars.

    Obviously, boxing must have its limits, but providing they're both perfectly fit, I can see nothing wrong with one healthy man beating the living daylights out of a little schoolgirl.

    KAMINA?!

    A talking sailor uniform is forcibly ripping her clothes off. She has every right to freak out.

    Deep fried loli.

    How's she holding her skirt between her legs?

    I saw a similar death trap in MadWorld.

    That poor sign girl.

    Panty shot. I'm sure we'll see plenty of those in this show.

    Heh heh. Uppercut. Get it? 'Cause she hit him with her scissor sword.

    You got blood on her face, you big disgrace.

    Hmm, so this is that Kill la Kill show I've been hearing about. It certainly is something and this is coming from a guy who watches stuff like Adventure Time, Panty & Stocking, and Captain Pronin. I'm not sure if I like this show yet, but I'm gonna keep on watching and see where this goes.

    "AAARGH, MY GLOVES CANNOT PENETRATE THE UNIFORM"

    The uniform is barely there. She's got a big fat midriff he should have struck at least once.

    This kind of living armor reminds me of Witchblade. Makes no sense there either.

    It only gets better from here, people. And this debut's already awesome. Pretty much the only Fall 2013 show I love more than Outbreak Company. Of course, considering the competition consisted of stuff like Wanna Be the Strongest and the World, Gingitsune, and Unbreakable Machine Doll, I'm probably not giving much justice with my description. But that's just based on my experiences.

    I didn't stick with it when it was simulcast 'cause I didn't like the J-dub, but I'm diggin' the E-dub so far. I'll probably keep watching.

    Hmmm...warrior new student, evil student council, revenge plot...but the fanservice is a tad extreme.

    All right, Mr. Kill la so-called Kill, you are officially on trial status. Let's see how this plot develops.

    I'm assuming this was made by the same people who made Gurren Lagann, which means ugly visual style: Strike one. Ridiculous amounts of unnecessary fanservice: Strike two. Over-the-top action that induces massive rolling of the eyes: Strike three. I think I'm pretty much done with this show already, but I'll give it another couple episodes to see if an actual worthwhile story pops up somewhere and the ump says that last strike was a foul tip. I'm not holding my breath, though.
